Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo just spent their first Christmas in Los Angeles! The Counting On couple and their daughter Felicity moved from Texas to California in June so Jeremy could pursue his Masters in ministry.
“Hey everyone. I hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends. We wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas,” Jeremy, 32, said in a message on Jinger’s Instagram Story. She added, “Merry Christmas guys.”
Jinger, 26, shared a few photos and videos of the couple’s first Christmas in the new home. Jinger posted a photo of her family sitting in front of their Christmas tree. She and her daughter sported matching red flannel shirts and black jeans for the day and Jeremy wore a black turtleneck, brown blazer and jeans.
Though the Counting On star’s family had a huge Christmas celebration at her parents' house in Arkansas, Jinger and Jeremy didn’t spend the holiday alone. Jeremy’s parents, Charles and Diana, flew into L.A. ahead of Jinger’s birthday on December 21 and they spent Christmas with them. His sister Valerie also flew in on Christmas morning.
They all played with dominos and gathered around for dinner.
Despite being in Los Angeles, Jinger was able to incorporate some of her holiday traditions from growing up in Arkansas by making her family’s recipe for yeast dinner rolls. “I’m gonna show you how to make my family’s favorite yeast rolls that we make for any and every holiday,” Jinger said on her Instagram Story on December 13. “Most of the kids request this for their birthdays as well.”
Jinger’s parents Jim Bob and Michelle have voiced how much they miss having her around this holiday season. The Counting On star turned 26 on December 21 and her parents wrote a touching message on Instagram.
“Jinger, YOU are one of the main reasons we consider this the ‘most wonderful time of the year!’ We’re so grateful that the Lord blessed us with your life 26 years ago on December 21!” her parents wrote. “It’s hard to believe our little girl with a heart of gold is all grown up with a little girl of her own!! Your sweetness is only outmatched by your love for all those around you. Have a WONDERFUL day... We can’t wait to see you again soon! Happy birthday, Jinger!”
